DJ R.A.W. aka 6Blocc to be honored in LA (06.05)

Los Angeles- There are some people out there that simply aren’t afraid to put their heads down and put in the work needed to really establish yourself as part of the fabric of the society that we live in and DJ R.A.W. aka B-Boy 3000 aka 6Blocc (or simply Raul to those of us that know him..) is one of those people.

From the early days of the rave scene here in the US to present day touring around the world dropping bass heavy bombs on throngs of listeners that come to see him throw it down as only he can, R.A.W. is one of the hardest working guys in the business.

On June 5th, 2010, a collective of DJs, MCs, artists of all flavors and a ton of people that both know and love R.A.W. for the work he’s put in over the years, are gathering at The Airliner to honor all of his contributions including helping secure L.A.’s position as one of the top electronic music scenes in America and the world!

Compression SF with Bryan Gee, Danny Wildchild, Trillbass + more (02.19)

San Francisco- The local bad boys of bass, Compression SF are back this month with another installment of face-melting good times over at 103 Harriett!

GET READY

ITS BRYAN GEE

BRYAN MOTHERF***IN GEE!

Holy f***ing shiite, it’s the DUKE of drum and bass, BRYAN GEE. As head honcho of V RECORDINGS, BRYAN GEE discovered and signed everyone from RONI SIZE to KRUST to DJ DIE to DJ MARKY from Brazil.

As a DJ, though, GEE proves time and again that nobody DJs drum and bass as well as him. The man is a motherf**king drum and bass WIZARD. A larger-than-life, stoned to the bejeesus belt, upside-down NINJA of ultimate bass funkification. And just like he’s been rocking his legendary London club night MOVEMENT for the last decade, GEE is coming to COMPRESSION once again to remind everyone of just how that sh*it is done.

Check out a blistering recent live set from BRYAN GEE here:

ALSO PERFORMING::

DANNY THE WILDCHILD

COMPRESSION also welcomes back resident DANNY THE WILDCHILD. Another drum & bass legend, the WILDCHILD has been rocking stateside audiences like a hurricane for well over 15 years. Chopping, scratching, flipping and otherwise FUNKING UP the turntables in ways you never thought possible, the WILDCHILD takes the bouncingest tracks you ever heard and bounces them harder.

Like BRYAN GEE, the WILDCHILD is only ever aimed at rocking the dancefloor. So limber up! This night is going to work your shit out!

Aphonic- Polarize (EPR006)

Up and coming artists Aphonic bring some serious heat on their debut release for Elevated Press.

The lead track Boogeyman is a brutal homage to horror. The track sounds like a slasher film. Very minimal by design this half time stomper demands that you lock the doors and hide the children! The eerie soundscape, huge bass, and a piercing synth line moves to a monstrous peak after the main drop.

The flip side literally comes with the polar opposite. Polarize is smooth, cool, and loving. Another half time stepper with minimal vibes this track is truly beautiful.

Touchphonics- Always On My Mind (EPR007)

This is a brand new single from Touchphonics on his own Elevated Press imprint.

Stop Schemin’ has been bringing some serious heat to dance floors round the globe. The track intros with a funky Latin swing only to drop into some serious bass heavy goodness. The drums are as funky as they come and the lead sample from Audio Two’s classic “Top Billin’” amplifies this tune to anthem status!!

The b-side comes with a hip hop/dance hall tinge. Always On My Mind takes a vocal sample from Mad Lion for a singsong, feel good tune. A half time glitchy intro drops into some bouncy old school drum and bass rhythms. This release is sure to get bodies moving!

The Rumor Mill: Custom 1200′s for LA DnB pioneer DJ CRS? !

According to his own Facebook announcement made earlier today:

“just got off the phone wit my homie from Technics. They wanna make me sum custom DJ CRS? signature 1200 turntables! BIG NEWS!!!! =)”

In my opinion this is HUGE for not only CRS? (aka George Ybarra) but for US DnB as a whole.  CRS? is one of the OG LA Junglists that helped push the sound that would become a driving force in the LA scene, along with DJs APX1, Oscar Da Grouch, R.A.W., and more!

Big ups to CRS?- we’re looking forward to seeing what they look like!

Flashback Friday: Goldie rockin the spray cans

Most folks outside of the UK only know Goldie as the bad boy DnB DJ,  head of Metalheadz or maybe have possibly seen him in a movie or two. Those in the know however, can point to many places throughout the UK where Goldie’s influence of art, design & music was felt long before Jungle/Dnb ever had come to be…
